Germany may have drawn a blank last night in their Euro 2016 game against Poland, but it hasn't stopped Manchester United being linked with two of their attackers.

While Sunderland are being linked with transfer activity involving Lee Cattermole, and Newcastle's Georginio Wijnaldum could be on the move to Roma, it is the Premier League big boys making the most headlines.

And for new United boss Jose Mourinho, it could be that Germany is the market for him, with the Red Devils linked with both Julian Draxler and Leroy Sane, though they face competition from City rivals Manchester City for the latter.
